CPCC is a pretty good school. Overall, I don't regret my decision to go here. The only reason I take off a star is because of 2 things. First, the cpcc website is awful. Second, the other people who go here are generally annoying. But I would still recommend going here.

I am about to graduate this semester. Somehow I missed just one class. By the time I found out, there was only one class in which one seat was available for short session. However, that class conflicted with another class for just one night. I asked ladies at the registration officeThey were very kind and courteous helping me. There was one lady, her name is Elilta. She took all her time, and undivided attention to help me out. I was impressed and blessed with her!

I called this campus because my professor told me that for my demonstration speech that I'm doing in my communications class through cpcc, I must rent a visual aid that In this case would be a mannequin to demonstrate my topic for the speech. They forwarded me to the maintenance department, then they forwarded me directly to a person's voicmail without it even ringing. Now I have to drive 20 miles in 5pm traffic just to see if I can rent a visual aid for my speech. Not very eager to help it seems.

CPCC is growing more every year. They offer a wider variety of classes than just a couple of years ago. According to my friends, the quality of the teaching staff has improved greatly as well. The future seems bright for CPCC!
